The new intestinal disease that has moseyed into town is called F-PIES. This is a disease that affects infants and babies, usually up through the age of 12 months. It is a serious GI illness that can cause projectile vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, and severe dehydration.
Is it an allergy… or an inflammation of the lining of the stomach and intestines that leads to symptoms of an allergic reaction?
I think it may be a little of both.
I also think that the best way to treat this horrible illness is to prevent it in the first place.
If you want to read more about this illness, you can start with this website from the F-PIES foundation.
